Almatec, a premier manufacturer of sanitary air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps, is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting in Hall 4.1, Stand D050b at the upcoming Anuga FoodTec 2012. Anuga FoodTec is an international trade fair for the food and drink processing industry. The exhibition will be held from March 27-30, 2012, in Cologne, Germany.
Almatec BIOCOR Series Pumps, one of Almatec’s key product lines within the food processing industry, have been designed to meet the strict standards, regulations and operational requirements that govern the manufacture of food products because it contains no horizontal areas. The B20 and B32 models utilize ball-lifting magnets that can be attached to the pump housing from the outside at the location of the four ball valves. With the use of magnets, the ball valves can be lifted from their seats, allowing the pump to be drained entirely without needing to be disassembled or removed from the application. This enables clean-in-place (CIP) and sanitize-in-place (SIP) capability.
BIOCOR Series pumps are available in three sizes, B20, B 32 and B 40, with maximum capacities of 15 to 70 gpm (3.5 to 17 m3/h) at a maximum discharge pressure of 100 psi (7 bar). The material for the wetted housing parts is electro-polished 316L stainless steel with a center block of PE conductive. The suction and discharge ports are offered in a clamp sanitary connection for inlet/outlet, but are available in a variety of sanitary threads, while the diaphragms, ball valves and O-rings are made of PTFE or EPDM. BIOCOR pumps are equipped with the patented PERSWING P® air-control system, which ensures accurate reversal of the main piston and low noise levels.
In addition, BIOCOR pumps have earned certifications for hygienic design and cleanability from both the 3A and EHEDG organizations, in addition to material compliance as stipulated by the FDA.
